A New Challenge And New Images At Dilly Beans

First off there is a new challenge up at Dilly Beans Designers and Challenge Blog and the Design team has come up with some awesome projects as always. You will want to head over to the Blog and check those out for sure. I hope you all will find some time to play along with us this week for our "Love Is In The Air" challenge.
For my card I used Megan's great Girlie Skellies Collage Sheet and  one of the Monster Boys images. So much fun. I colored the Monster Boy with my Copis as well as a couple of Megan's hearts and then for the hearts I covered those in super fine glitter. the tiny hearts on the side are from the Collage sheet and have a good layer of Glossy Glaze on them.
 The piece of polka dot paper is Bo Bunny and I punched out a few of the Dots so you can see the background card stock. I colored that with some red ink and the smooch technique.
 Also this week Megan added some New Images in the Store and I'm so in love with them and I'm sure you will be too.  I had to print this out and color it the minute I saw it. There are Nine new images in all. Run and see them quick.
I used some Graphic 45 papers for this and then for the image I colored it with my Copics and then the background is painted with iridescent water colors. Well I got some of the watercolor on the black outlines of the hair and I did not like the way that looked so I used a Black Gel Pen to trace over all the lines in the hair. Much better.
 Here is a close up for you.
Don't forget to join us at the Challenge Blog for the new Challenge this week and I can't wait to see all the great entries for this week.
